    Abstract

    A 48 year old woman developed an acute vestibular syndrome associated with upside down vision a few hours after minor cervical trauma. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an ischaemic lesion in the territory of the medial branch of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. An arteriogram showed a dissection of the left extracranial vertebral artery.
